It was therefore decided to follow up the 2010 barometer with another survey in 2011, taking in a representative sample of students as well. For the present 2011 version of the barometer the format was slightly modified and the student survey was designed so as to ‘mirror’ the one for academics as closely as possible with the purpose of comparison in mind.
The barometer is based on answers received from around 700 teachers in accredited higher education institutions and around 400 students in electronic surveys, conducted in April/May 2011. The samples reflect the composition of the Norwegian teaching and student communities in terms of discipline, institutional affiliation, formal position (teachers) and degree level (students). A relatively weak return of answers from students threatens the statistical significance of some findings in the students’ barometer.
